Inspirations: Vintage Books no.4

I found this charming book a few months ago in a used book store and couldn't resist picking it up. It's called The Story of Zachary Zween by Mabel Watts, with illustrations done by artist Marylin Hafner, from 1967. I really enjoyed seeing London landmarks depicted with simplified shapes and colors. This book reminded me of work by Mary Blair, and is a welcome addition to my collection of illustrated books.
